Why throw away those pumpkin seeds? Thanksgiving is around the corner, and make the most out of those carved pumpkins! They can make a great quick Autumn snack.
Nutritionist Frances Largeman-Roth explains how to make roasted pumpkin seeds. Not only are these a great tasting snack, but they are loaded with magnesium as well!
First, preheat the oven to 300 degrees. You can get your pumpkin seeds from either a regular jack-o-lantern or a sweetie pumpkin which is known as a baking pumpkin. Once you have your seeds give them a nice rinse under water and boil.
You must now get your seeds bone dry so they don't boil when you bake them. Once dry, sprinkle salt and olive oil over seeds, just enough to lightly coat. Place the pumpkin seeds on a baking sheet so they are evenly spread out and are not overlapping. Place in oven for 20-30 minutes but check frequently until they are lightly golden. Enjoy!
